how do you know from tracks they are calling. i stop all the time to listen and never call. you know what they say when you assume something.Beartrppr said:I've noticed that birds that see alot of these roadside preseason callers seem to respond better later in the season if you hoof it back into the woods and call. It's crazy around hear. You can follow the tracks on the dirt roads and see where everybody stops and calls.
I did, and killed him the first day!!!quackmaster4 said:It's legal, but usually not the smartest thing to do.
Every time you call a gobbler in before the season, one of two things happen. Either you spook him, (which makes him reluctant to respond to calls), or he comes in, sees no hens, then wanders off, (which ALSO makes him reluctant to respond to calls). Have that happen to him a couple times before the season starts, then try and call him in during the season.
all i was stating is all tracks are not calling dont get riled up over a statement.Beartrppr said:I've seen them. It's obvious. Don't tell me at mid morning guys are just roaming around "listening". You, my friend, are obviously assuming I don't know what I'm talking about and you know what they say when you assume something. Your words, not mine.
